Here is a comprehensive list of every movie and TV show that is currently popular on Netflix, which includes a selection of shows in every genre.
The entire list consists of
1. The Midnight Club
It’s become something of a Halloween tradition for horror maestro Mike Flanagan to start releasing another of his delightfully terrifying miniseries, and so after The Hauntings of Hill House and Bly Manor, and last year’s Midnight Mass, comes this latest chilling-looking tale, adapted from a novel by YA author Christopher Pike and focusing on a group of terminally ill teenagers living in a hospice who form a “midnight club” in which they share spooky But it only really gets started there. With Heather Lagenkamp, who played Nancy in Nightmare on Elm Street, playing the enigmatic doctor in charge of the institution, the movie looks like it will be packed with thrills.
The Midnight Club releases on Netflix on October 7th.
2. Let the Right One
This month, audiences have an option of not just one, but two, new popular vampire series. Prior to this vague small-screen spin-off from the renowned Swedish film about a prepubescent bloodsucker, on October 2 in the US, AMC will premiere their new rendition of Anne Rice’s classic, Interview with the Vampire. It is based in New York and stars Demián Bichir as the father of a girl who has transformed into a vampire ten years ago and is currently trapped in the body of a 12-year-old. The plot centres on the pair’s quest to find a solution for her condition.
The first episode of Let the Right One In will air on Showtime on October 7 in the US and Paramount+ on October 8 in the UK.
3. The Playlist
The dizzying, frequently morally ambiguous world of tech start-ups has been the subject of numerous shows this year, including The Dropout, Super Pumped, and WeCrashed. Based on the book Spotify Untold by Sven Carlsson and Jonas Leijonhufvud, this Swedish drama now adds to the list by offering a fictionalised history of the development of the globally dominant music streaming service Spotify. The teaser suggests that it would make an unlikely high-octane drama out of the business conflicts Spotify founder Daniel Ek experienced as he worked to make music more accessible than it has ever been.
The Playlist debuts on Netflix on October 13th.
4. The Watcher
It must be acknowledged that mega-showrunner Ryan Murphy’s golden handcuffs arrangement with Netflix has not resulted in an abundance of riches; rather, there have been many more flops (Ratched, Hollywood, The Politician) than hits (okay, The Boys in the Band was alright?). However, this newest miniseries from the Murphy stable still seems intriguing, from its stacked ensemble cast to its true-life narrative about a couple who, after purchasing their ideal home in a New Jersey suburb, were pursued by someone sending them letters signed by “the Watcher.” While Mia Farrow, Jennifer Coolidge, and Noma Dumezweni play a neighbour, an estate agent, and a private investigator, respectively, Bobby Cannavale and Naomi Watts portray the husband and wife who appear to be in danger.
On October 13, Netflix will debut The Watcher.
5. Inside Amy Schumer
This sketch programme, whose last season felt like it ended years ago, back in 2016, is where Schumer initially gained notoriety before being propelled onto the Hollywood A-List. But now, with a new batch of five episodes that should be just as biting as ever, Schumer is going back to her roots: She recently tweeted a letter to her fans on social media, stating, “I wanted to bring back Inside Amy Schumer to burn any lingering ties.” “The show that will finally result in my permanent cancellation is one you won’t want to miss,”
On October 20, Inside Amy Schumer will debut on Paramount+ in the US.
6. Somewhere Boy
From the creators of the stylish and surreal black comedy, The End of the F***ing World comes this equally striking-sounding new series about a teenager who has lived his entire life inside his house in the remote countryside because his troubled father told him that the outside world was full of monsters – but is finally forced to confront reality. And a part of that reality is the untimely passing of his mother many years earlier.
On Channel 4 and All 4, in the UK, Somewhere Boy makes its debut in October.
